Exxon Mobil is still doing projects in the Arctic and still doing projects in the Black Sea, which is Crimea, with the Russians and their energy companies? American energy companies defy our sanctions, and yet we are prosecuting French banks for doing the same thing. This is insane. The Empire is out of control.
Hypocrisy, envy, malice, cruelty, vengefulness, seduction, rape, robbery, swindling, arson, bigamy, adultery, and the oppression and humiliation of the poor and helpless in all ways have been and still are common among the civilized peoples of the earth. Patriotism is the opposite of common brotherhood. The lower animals seem to have none of this but we’re told we’re better.
The world is being led by bullies, criminals and fools. The biggest threat facing our country isn’t terrorism, debt, drugs, poverty, healthcare, immigration, climate change, abortion, gay rights, racism, school shootings, militarizing of the police, privatizing the military. To anyone looking for a campaign slogan: “It’s the corruption stupid!”
For those looking for the next wars to fight, might I suggest corruption, abuse of power, and ignorance? Ignorance is fought by simply shining a light on the other two, something our mainstream media has forgotten. Thanks to the internet and the citizen journalist, that darkness is being opened. How can we even have honest debates about the troubles facing our nation when the people in power control the debate, yet lost their credibility long ago? Where is the moral high ground in a bottomless pit?
Why was the company that built the healthcare website chosen? Why did we really go to war in Iraq? Why has no one been held accountable in any of the myriad of scandals we’re faced with today? Why don’t more people stand up and march to their own drum, rather than being knocked off course with divisive issues fanned by devious politicians distracting us from their own corruption and selling out the country? Whether you’re working for a government agency, or just interacting with one, get in the habit of questioning things.
